Original Tweet Button Shortcode


Twitter has just released its own original Share button. And this plugin simply allows you to add Twitter’s official share button in your posts with the shortcode [tweetthis].

(I also released a plugin which automatically adds the button to the end of the post – you can check it out here.)

The plugin works fine but it has no options or something else that you can tweak. However, it will be constantly developed.


  1. Upload the folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. That’s all.


I want the button to be added at the end of my posts automatically, how do I do that?

You install this plugin instead.
